Hello, my name is Binnie Barnes – I am a timeless beauty with the charm and spunk of my namesake! Life’s been pretty ruff for me but now I’m part of the RCR family and could not be happier! You see, when I was just a puppy I was adopted from the pound and I was so excited to have a home of my very own. But it wasn’t much of a home after all. My new owner, put a chain on my neck and tied me up in the backyard where I lived all alone for six years. And then one day I guess they got tired of me and took me back to the pound where I was scheduled to be euthanized due to space.
But life had other plans for me! The chain is gone now, my wounds have healed, my hair grew back nicely, and my fur and skin look so much better! I am currently in a boarding facility where I receive daily training and have learned all my obedience commands. My teacher says I’m super smart, eager to please, and just love to soak up the attention and affection I’ve waited my whole life for! While I am being taken good care of here, I dream every day of my new home and hope to go there soon. I am kind of a chill lady and would just love to curl up next to you on the couch and watch TV and be your new best friend. Will you be my hero? I promise to love you forever and ever!
